Livery Yard Owner Online Learning

Whilst the Yard Owner Hub contains lots of Documentation and Resources for Yard Owners, it can be hard to work out exactly what you need or to get answers for your exact situation.

From December 2020 we are thrilled to announce we will be launching the ‘Yard Owner Online Learning’ information sessions. These will be hosted online seminars covering a range of important topics. The aim of the sessions will be to inform and educate yard owners as to how best to manage their yards.

These sessions will be held in group sessions via Zoom. Each session will be around one hour with around a 30-minutes presentation and plenty of opportunities to discuss and ask questions with additional support and resources available for those who may need it. Numbers will be limited to ensure all sessions are beneficial and productive. Those sessions with high demand will be repeated. A minimum of 15 attendees is required to run a session.

To help cover the cost of hosting the sessions and providing the resources, we are asking for a minimum contribution of £5 per session. However, these sessions will be free if you are a LiveryList Standard or Featured Listing Owner or an Approved or Certified BHS Riding School or Livery Yard Owner. Details on purchasing tickets is available further down the page.

All sessions will be held by Cheryl Johns. Cheryl created LiveryList in 2011 and has since developed it into the UK’s largest yard owner resource. She is an experienced yard owner and manager and holds numerous qualifications in yard management, business management and marketing. Since 2016 she has run a successful and popular support, advice and networking group for yard owners currently with over 1600 members. She also works on a consultancy basis alongside equestrian associations in the UK such as the Redwings and the ABRS to develop their campaigns and services. She also writes as a guest contributor for Horsemart on the topic of yard ownership and management. There will also be guest hosts for some sessions where they can provide specialist information on a particular topic.

These sessions will include:

  • Understanding Viability
  • Common Mistakes
  • Available Resources
  • How to Calculate Your Costs
  • Reviewing & Reducing your outgoings
  • Moving Forward
